RETAIL ASSEMBLY hosts ‘Industry Innovators’ Panel at KNOWSHOW

New format shares ideas for positive change in Fashion and Retail


Vancouver, BC – (July 15, 2014)

Jennifer Pilkington of RETAIL ASSEMLBY returns to KNOWSHOW, Canada’s premier lifestyle tradeshow, Tuesday July 29th at the Vancouver Convention Centre for the ‘Taking the Long View: Building Business Longevity’ panel discussion.


From the inception of the retail learning sessions, RETAIL ASSEMBLY has engaged the retailers attending. This year, Ms. Pilkington will be presenting to this same group: a one-hour session at 10:00 am titled “Better Markdowns”. However, this reaches only about half of the show’s 2800 attendees.


“This season, we also wanted to connect with the broader industry – including the marketing and sales professionals in attendance”, says Pilkington of the additional panel offering. “KNOWSHOW attendees are always open to be inspired in business, and we have some incredibly innovative and successful brands and retailers in our midst”. Tapping into the panel’s stories and solutions to build a brighter future is what KNOWSHOW and RETAIL ASSEMBLY hope to accomplish. 


The panel includes Jamie Cormack, co-founder Hershel Supply Co., Sean Miller, head of business development at No Limits Group, and Walter Manning, owner of Old Faithful Shop The discussion will be moderated by Jennifer Pilkington, managing director of RETAIL ASSEMBLY Inc..


Please join the conversation Tuesday July 29th from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM at the Vancouver Convention Centre, 1055 Canada Pl in Vancouver British Columbia.
